Vino, I believe is the thing that allows you to share a gnome desktop
over the network. I can't seem to connect to the one on my laptop at
all, which is a pain. Trying to debug it, I don't even know what the
process is called.
I believe vino uses libvncserver to create it's own vnc server rather
than using vncserver or similar (could be wrong though, no reason that
doc couldn't be totally out of date.) But what is the process actually
called? It clearly isn't vino-passwd or vino-preferences which are the
only executable I seem to have that are called anything like vino. How
is it started? Does it have to be in
My first point of call is "is the daemon actually running?" and I can't
answer it. vino-settings doesn't tell me if things are working or not of
course. I've tried connecting from the local machine with the firewall
totally disabled to no avail.
The documentation is only telling me about their grand designs to do
everything for everyone and what the ok button does which isn't helping
all that much.
Anyone know answers or know what you do to find out?
